National Cancer Institute-UMD Symposium
The annual National Cancer Institute-University of Maryland (NCI-UMD) Partnership for Integrative Cancer Research Symposium will take place on February 17, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The symposium will be held in Bethesda, Md., at the National Institutes of Health's John Edward Porter Neuroscience Center, Room 640.
This symposium aims to foster interactions between NCI and UMD in biophysics, systems biology, bioengineering, and bioinformatics.
Dr. Robert Singer (Albert Einstein College of Medicine) will serve as the featured keynote speaker. Dr. Singer is a leader in the field of biophotonics, which enables scientists to observe activities within living cells at the molecular level, and in the study of mRNA, a molecule that controls the expression and positioning of proteins within cells.
The event will also feature a series of short talks, a poster session, and extended break time to allow for discussions of possible joint research collaborations. A full symposium schedule will be announced soon.
